get a square deal.
Porter A. Whale.v of Anderson next
addressed the meeting. He sjv * that
Anderson wanted baseball and xs will
ing to support a league provided the
teams would be so manag?i fiat no
runaway race would take pl.ice.
Dr. J. C. Creech of Gaffnev was the
next speaker and he said *hat Gatfney,
if given a square, deal would put a
team in the field edqual to any in the
league. He said that Gaffnev has all

If there had been any doubt befon:
this meeting concerning Gaffuey's en
tpriner the leaerue this doubt was dis
pelled at yesterday's meeting. Ed De

more ready money and more cash in

every town in the league would know
that they were up against a real
cuit and the Gaffney fans said that

The league is certainly to start on
Thursday week and it will be fast

conservative lines but the new league
will prove equal in many respects to
the old Carolina Association.

until the season opens here. The first
game will be played this afternoon
against Elberton, lollowed by a game
at Lavonia and then the team will

nlace the case in her hands. In reach

Vera requested by Kate, Fuller drops
an envelope addressed to himself at
another address than the one he had
previously stated to Kate. Kate ob
serves this discrepancy, and after the
'two lea^ rushes out and at once goes

Fuller is a dope fiend, and she tempts
him to confess his plot with the prom- <

without the drug for several days, is
crazed by the sight of it, and prompt

ship's condition. When he has bared

Kate Kirby, knowing that further in- ,
diligence in the vice would cost his

HOW TO PRESERVE EGGS.
Clemson College, June 14. One of the
ways in which the poultryman can reduce
the cost of living is by "canning" eggs at
this season of the year, Eggs are plenti
ful in South Carolina now and can be only
sold at prices which are low in comparison
with those of winter. For this reason the
farmer usually has more on hand than he
can dispose of readily. How to keep them
fresh for months is described by-F. C. Hare
State poultry demonstration agent in co
operation with Clemson College,
One of the oest and simplest methods of
preserving or "canning" eggs is to place
them In a solution of "water glass", or
sodium silicate. This is a Transparent li
quid that looks like thin, strained honey
andls used commercially in manufacturing
mucilage. It can be secured from a drug- I
gist. This liquid covers the shell of an egg
with an impervious coating of glue
and prevents bacteria-laden air from
penetrating inside the shell and rendering
the egu unlit for food. Eggs treated with
sodium sllicutecan easily be kept for nine
months in good condition, provided they
are perfectly fresh when placed in this
Secure a suitable glazed earthen ware
crock with cover-aflve gallon butter crock
is a good size?the glazing to prevent the
solution from being absorbed. Secure one
quart or more of sodium silicate or water
glass. Thoroughly rinse the inside of the
crock and the cover with boiling water to
kill any germ life that may be there.
Boil three op four gallons of water and
allow to cool. When cold, make a mixture
of nine parts of this water and one part of
the sodium silicate.
Fill the crock two-thirds full with the
preserving mixture. As the eggs are
gathered dally, put them Into the crock.
Do not keep eggs for several days before
putting into the solution, as it is very
important that tne eggs go iu tut? uu,y mo/

For general culinary purposes water
giass eggs are equal to ordinary fresh eggs.
They may be poached, fried, scrambled or
used in making cakes or biscuits, just as
they come from the crock. However, if it
is desired to boil them stick a pin in the
large end of the shell and make a small
hole to allow the gas to escape when the
egg is heated. The water-glass solution
closes the pores of the egg shell and acts
like a tin can around tomatoes. If an
opening is not made the 6hell will crack
in boiling for the heated gas to escape.

He Lost the Wager.
A nian who prided himself on a won*
derful Imagination that could conceive
the blggeBt lies on record once made a
wager that he could-tell a greater
falsehood than any man In the town
where he resided. The stakes being
deposited, he proclaimed that he onoe
threw a nail with such force that it
pierced the moon. "Aye, that is true,"
exclaimed another man. "I saw him
do it, for I stood on the other side and

fragments of time. A bit of poetry or
a verse of Scripture learned while

than one's self every day?by such
simple plans as these life is enriched \

and natural manner, turn into guilty
and fraudulent possessions when
sought and gained through the losses
or pain of others.

When It was the turn of a certain shy
little lad to recite he did so in a very
low and faltering manner. "Could
you speak a little louder, dear?" asked
the teacher, "I can't hear what you
say." "Well, it's a prayer isn't it?"
came the unexpected If logical answer.
"I wasn't speaking to you."
